My 10 year old Turkish van mix, sweet boy was diagnosed this week with diabetes. I believe we caught it early enough as I noticed he was losing weight and acting differently. His other functions seem normal. He is my ride or die baby, and been with me since I was in college. He even had some Internet fame, going viral in his earlier years. He's been there for me through a horrible separation and moving from NY to Florida. I have 5 other rescue babies that are happy and healthy. I spoke with the vet extensively about what is required for treatment. It couldn't have come at an absolute worst time... I leave for Chicago tomorrow and will be back on Wednesday. I don't know what to do. I got him a case of prescription food from the vet and I have someone coming to take care of my fur babies, and is willing to make sure he tries to eat the new food. But he can't give the injections. I haven't started the injections yet either. I don't even know where to start. I am a nervous wreck. All I have been able to do is read the links provided on this site, the FAQs... Everything I can to be better educated. I just want to do the right thing.
